Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party resting in sand dunes during their journey from the Ramlat Unayq, north of Al Ain/Buraimi oasis, to Jabal Sumeini. On the left a member of Wilfred Thesiger's travelling party sits in sand criss-crossed with footprints next to a large pile of gear. At the centre two men stand on the lee side of the low dune. A second pile of equipment sits in the sand on the left, next to a large bush. In the distance beyond rolling sand dunes lead to a far rocky mountain topped by jagged rocky peaks.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
